    intrigue for or solicit office how well soever he might be qualified for it by natural endowment or educational capability or how much soever it might be merited by personal services already rendered In this respect he has differed from many others He has looked with great disapprobation and not without apprehension for the future welfare of our country upon the corrupt practices by which unworthy men and unworthy measures have often been pushed by unworthy means into public favor In 1818 he organized at Detroit the first Sabbath School ever opened in Michigan and superintended it during the four subsequent years of his residence in that city He afterwards organized and superintended for many years a similar school in Concord While a member of the School Committee in Concord he reorganized the public schools in that town introduced a new system for the division of the public school money and prepared and printed a new code of school regulations One of these regulations required that school registers prepared under such forms as he prescribed should be furnished to the teachers at the commencement to be returned at the end of each successive school term and another that the committee should make written reports annually to the town concerning the schools and in 1830 he prepared presented and published their first report These measures were original with him and so far as his knowledge extends this was the first Annual School Report of that description ever presented in a public town meeting in Massachusetts Before that time it had not been considered one of the duties of such committees to make a report of their doings concerning the matters entrusted to them A similar regulation was subsequently introduced in Cambridge Northborough and other places and it operated so well that at his suggestion while a member of the Legislature the law of April 13 1838 requiring its adoption throughout the State was passed And it may with perfect confidence be said that no measure aside from the establishment of the Board of Education itself has done so much for the improvement of the public schools of the State In preparing some articles relating to the important historical incidents for which Concord is celebrated for the newspaper then published in that town he met with so much matter not only of local but of general interest and value that he conceived the idea of preparing a separate work on the subject And this idea was matured in his publication entitled A History of the Town of Concord Middlesex County Massachusetts from its earliest settlement to 1832 and of the adjoining Towns Bedford Acton Lincoln and Carlisle containing various notices of County and State History not before published Boston Russell Odiorne Co 1835 8vo pp 400 This work was one of the pioneer histories of its class and in plan and execution had some original features It was prepared in hours snatched from active business and from sleep during the last four years of the author s residence in Concord William Lincoln Esq in his History of Worcester says The general plan of arrangement has been imitated from Mr Shattuck s History of Concord It would have been greatly desirable that the excellency of this model could have been more generally copied A favorable review of the work appeared in the North American Review for April 1836 and in other periodicals While making the investigation necessary for the preparation of this volume he became acquainted with the condition of the public records in many towns and learned to his regret that the registration of births marriages and deaths was generally neglected and that comparatively few public or private registers of the kind were made Viewing it as a matter of general interest and importance he called public attention to the subject by communications in the newspapers and in 1841 published a work under the title A Complete System of Family Registration Part First containing charts forms and directions for registering on a new and simple plan the birth marriage and death of the several members of the family and for ascertaining and exhibiting their connections relative situation heirs at law ancestors descendants and generation Part Second containing forms and suggestions for registering other particulars proper or useful to be retained in remembrance relative to any member of a family 4to After several editions of this work had been published the stereotype plates were destroyed by fire Another work upon a new and more simple plan has been prepared and will soon appear under the following double title Blank Book Forms for Family Registers devised and constructed upon a new simple and comprehensive Plan and designed for general Use in every Family including Suggestions and Directions for an improved System of Family Registration 4to The page following this general title contains another title partly blank for a specific family to be filled out by the name of the one who may use it for its own records thus expressed The Family Register of the Ancestors Connections and Descendants of first compiled and arranged by and continued by The registration laws of the State were first brought under the consideration of the Legislature at the request of Mr Shattuck and resulted in the passage of the act of March 3 1842 He furnished some of the materials for the First and Second Reports under this act The Fourth Report on a new plan was prepared entirely by him and the Appendix contained some general views on the subject also published in a separate form entitled Letter to the Secretary of State on the Registration of Births Marriages and Deaths in Massachusetts 8vo pp 42 While a member of the Legislature in 1849 a revision of the laws was made agreeably to his recommendations as chairman of a committee in his report entitled Report of the Joint Special Committee of the Legislature of Massachusetts appointed to consider the expediency of modifying the Laws relating to the Registration of Births Marriages and Deaths presented March 3 1849 pp 58 House Document No 65 At the special request of the Secretary of State he designed and prepared the blanks to carry this new law into execution and wrote the pamphlet entitled Instructions of the Secretary of State to Town and City Clerks Registrars and others relating to the Registration of Births Marriages and Deaths embracing the Laws of the Commonwealth on the subject 8vo pp 32 The plan of the Reports made under these new regulations was devised by him though the execution of this plan having been intrusted to others has not been entirely such as he desired He also originated the plan and drew the ordinance which was passed by the city of Boston for carrying the laws into operation in that city and for creating the office of City Registrar The system of public registration here described though it at first met with some opposition has since become generally popular and is now considered a necessity Similar systems have more recently been introduced into other States and are likely to become general throughout the whole Union If faithfully carried out henceforward the rights of property will be more securely guarded the natural history and laws of human life will become more generally known and genealogists and biographers will have a more easy and sure pathway to the information they may desire In 1837 he devised the plan for arranging printing and preserving the Documents of the City of Boston printed by order of the several Departments of the City Government which was begun in 1838 and has since been continued in one or more annual volumes upon the same plan And he then introduced a resolution which was passed providing for exchanging such documents for those of other cities intending that they should form a nucleus for the commencement of a city library At the same time he collected and caused to be bound a few sets of such documents as could be found of the four previous years which had been printed without system and left to chance for their preservation He also prepared a Municipal Register containing the Rules and Orders of the City Council recent Ordinances and Laws and a List of the Municipal Officers of the City of Boston for 1841 This was the first publication of its kind and has since been continued annually under the same general title and upon a similar plan He also obtained the passage of the Resolve by the State Legislature of April 25 1838 providing for international exchanges of State documents and publications for those of other states and governments In 1849 as a member of the Legislative Library Committee he wrote the Report House Document No 71 recommending a modification of the plan for enlarging and managing the State Library During his connection with the city government of Boston he labored with others to reduce the public debt and to secure an economical administration of its affairs and the condition of the finances in 1842 and the three following years as compared with the then previous and the now existing debts will show with what results When the great question of introducing water into the city was discussed honestly believing that the specific measure then proposed for the acceptance of the citizens would not be expedient he wrote at the request of others two pamphlets in opposition to it The first was entitled Letter from Lemuel Shattuck in answer to Interrogatories of J Preston in relation to the Introduction of Water into the City of Boston Boston Samuel N Dickinson Printer 1845 8vo pp 40 The second which appeared anonymously was entitled How shall we vote on the Water Act 8vo pp 24 These pamphlets were extensively circulated among the people and the defeat of the measure was attributed mainly to their influence Another act less objectionable was afterwards passed and accepted by the city without opposition Among various other matters with received his careful examination while connected with the city government were the then existing Bills of Mortality The result of this examination appeared in his publication entitled The Vital Statistics of Boston containing an Abstract of the Bills of Mortality for the last twenty nine years and a General View of the Population and Health of the City at other periods of its History Philadelphia Lea Blanchard 8vo pp 36 Extracted from the American Journal of Medical Sciences for April 1841 In 1845 he was employed to superintend the taking of the census of Boston and he then originated and introduced for the first time in this country a new plan for the enumeration that of taking the name and description of every person enumerated and among other characteristics specifying the birthplace of each and thus distinguishing the native from the foreign population The elementary facts thus obtained were afterwards abstracted in a variety of statistical tables and statements giving much new information of value which had not and could not be obtained under the old method of taking a census before in use The result of his labors appeared in a volume entitled Report to the Committee of the City Council appointed to obtain the Census of Boston for the year 1845 embracing Collateral Facts and Statistical Researches illustrating the History and Condition of the People and their Means of Progress and Prosperity Boston John H Eastburn City Printer 1846 8vo pp 280 with Maps and Plates This report has been highly commended and it served as a model for similar reports in Charleston S C New Orleans and other cities As Chairman of the Legislative Committee he wrote their report recommending for the State census a modification of the plan followed in Boston entitled Report on the Subject of the State Census of 1850 by the Special Committee of the Legislature of Massachusetts presented April 7 1849 8vo pp 46 House Document No 127 In November 1849 he was invited by the Census Board at Washington to visit that city to assist in preparing the plan for the National Census of 1850 and the first second third fifth and sixth five of the six blank schedules used in that census with the accompanying instructions were designed and prepared principally by him The act of Congress also relating to the census was passed with a few modifications substantially as he drew it See Compendium of the Seventh Census of the United States for 1850 p 13 The plan for taking the census of the States of New York and Massachusetts for 1855 has been copied substantially from that he prepared for the National Census of 1850 In 1849 he wrote the Report of the Committee to whom was referred the Memorials of the Massachusetts Medical Society relating to a Sanitary Survey of the State House Document No 66 and during the same year he was appointed by the Governor and Council Chairman of the Commissioners under a Resolve of the Legislature passed by the recommendation of this Committee This appointment was entirely unsolicited and unexpected and was not accepted without doubt and hesitation At the request of his associates on the commission he collected the materials for their report and it was designed and written entirely by him It appeared in a volume entitled Report of a General Plan for the Promotion of Public and Personal Health devised prepared and recommended by the Commissioners appointed under a Resolve of the Legislature of Massachusetts relating to a Sanitary Survey of the State presented April 25 1850 Boston Dutton Wentworth State Printers 1850 8vo pp 544 Maps and Plates From a printed legislative report House Document No 212 for 1852 recommending the payment of the expenses of this Commission we make the following extracts relating to the value of this work The report of the Commissioners has been noticed in many of the leading periodical publications and we infer that no document ever emanated from the State that has been more generally commended The following extracts from some of the most important medical reviews in other States indicate the opinions of those who have read the work and are competent to judge of its merits The book before us although under the uninviting title of a report is yet in truth an epitome of sanitary science We will not say the duty of the Commission has been well discharged this would be far too feeble praise for although expecting much the report far exceeds our expectations We doubt if there has appeared any work for many a year in our country that is of more real interest to the community than this whether we regard it as replete with suggestions for the promotion of personal health or as a great political document intended to show the mode whereby the physical and intellectual powers of a people may be fully developed Its being the first of the kind ever published in this country imparts to it an interest of more than ordinary notice its being the best of the kind ever published adds greatly to this interest and to the reputation of the author and we feel assured that the objects aimed at must ultimately be attained when so presented N Y Journal of Medicine March 1851 This report is the result of that enlarged policy which characterizes the action of the legislatures of some of our older States and which we hope soon to see infused among the western legislatures upon the subject particularly of public health It is the fullest document yet issued on this side the Atlantic on the subject of sanitary regulations it is worthy of the noble State from which it emanated and the Commission has cause to congratulate itself upon the manner its duties have been performed Western Lancet Cincinnati March 1851 We have thus given at considerable length the substance of this able and valuable report After all that has been done by the people and governments of some countries of Europe and after all that has been done by individuals and societies in America this report is the first approach to legislation from any government in this country We commend this report with all its plans and details its facts and arguments to the careful consideration of physicians and philanthropists of political economists and legislators with the confident belief that the condition of man will be improved and the interests of humanity advanced as well as public and private wealth increased by its adoption American Journal of Medical Sciences April 1851 A commendatory review of the report is contained in the London British and Foreign Medico Chirurgical Review for January 1852 the leading quarterly medical review of the world Reviews commending this work appeared also in other medical journals and in the North American Review Christian Examiner New Englander and in various other periodical publications and newspapers A copy of this volume was distributed to each town clerk s office and most of the public libraries in the State The Appendix to this Report contains various illustrations of its most important principles and among others three papers relating respectively to Lawrence Attleborough and Lynn embracing an historical view of the population sanitary condition and statistics of those places and their means of health wealth and prosperity They were designed to show the manner in which such reports might be made concerning every town in the Commonwealth Each of these papers was published in a separate pamphlet and extensively circulated in those towns under the following titles 1 Sanitary Survey of the Town of Lawrence By the Chairman of the Commissioners appointed under a Resolve of the Legislature of Massachusetts relating to a Sanitary Survey of the State Reprinted from the Report of the Commissioners 8vo pp 24 Maps and Plates 2 Sanitary Survey of the Town of Attleborough By the Chairman of the Commissioners c 8vo pp 32 3 Annual Report of the Board
